Chinatown, Kuala Lumpur is a bustling, popular tourist spot based at its marketplace known as Petaling Street. In the olden days, when Malaysia was still known as Tanah Melayu or Malaya, the Chinese had come and settled in this country working as tin miners. However, during the Selangor Civil War, several tin mines were temporarily abandoned. The mines were flooded when the Chinese returned after the war. Hence, it is said that Yap Ah Loy, an influential Chinese figure had opened a tapioca mill on Petaling Street in his effort persuading the Chinese to stay on. This event had given the name “Chee Cheong Kai” meaning ‘Starch Factory Street’. Since then onwards, Petaling Street has been given a facelift and the Chinese community continue its legacy of Chinatown heritage and soul.
